I think I am going to be a responsible girl (ugh, how I hate that word) and tell my mom I'll go for B.

Because in less than a month's time, my credit card will probably be at that amount again once I get U2 tickets and travel accomodations squared away.

Oh, yes... and there's that little trip to the west coast I'm considering as well, but that may tie into the U2 tickets.

Have your mom pay off your credit card debt...and then charge the iPod.

Really though...if your debt is that much more than the iPod, I'd go with the debt.

Although...by the time you figure tax for the iPod...and if you get a 3-year warranty...you're looking at $420. That's what my family did for me.

As much as I would love the iPod, I don't really think I'd find myself crying everytime I look at it, like I would with my credit card statement.

Thanks for the votes, guys.

I MIGHT be out of debt by the time I'm 25 or so.

I think last month when my bill hit the $600 mark is when I lost it for the first time at the apartment.

I don't do well with big sums of money.

Er yeah, I'd choose A. or B. Whichever one was "pay off the debt". I've been debt and CC free for years now and it's pretty nice. Well it wasn't that nice when I had to get a cosigner for something because I apparently have no credit at all.


Er, yeah, anyway B is good.

Add two zeros and there's my debt (60,000). And I don't even HAVE a credit card!

I was just talking about credit cards....

I don't count my student loans or car as debt because it's my choice to drive a brand new car. I could have kept what I had but I wanted a new one. And my student loan isn't that much so I don't even hardly notice that payment each month.

The longer the day wore on, the longer that thought stayed in my mind.

I hate being so freaking responsible, lol.

yeah same here

but i voted the credit card thing, if your mom is willing to do that, then go for it. being out of debt is more important.

Definitely pay off the debt.

The U2 iPod is a 4th Gen (which aside from improved battery life is worse conceptually than the 3rd Gen). The 4th Gen iPod was a rushed product in order to counteract competitors. Watch for a 5th Gen with a number of improvements (including significantly better battery life) to be out within the next 9-12 months, probably in time for the holiday season next year. Save your bucks and get that one then.
